Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Thursday, June 29, 1972 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, JUNE 30 Your Birthday Today: Tills is a year to get out of what- ever grooves you've let your- self selQe into. Abandoning bad habits as preliminary to sclfimprovement programs gels you started. Today's na- tives find lioma life import- ant, are frequently gifted teachers who themselves live by what they teach. AHIES (March 21 April Competitive noises intrude. Do as little as current conditions permit. Any interesting talo you tsll conies back unrecog- nizable. Are winds useful? Andy sends a complete 50- volilmc set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Karen Johnson, age 16, of. Tuba, Oklahoma, for her question: Arc the winds really useful? If there no breezes, city folk would stifle in stagnant air. If there were global winds fresh air from the for- ests could not be distributed around the world. Those same winds also carry our waste carbon dioxide to the outdoor greenery, where the plants can change it into tomorrow's sup- ply of fresh oxygen. In a wind- less world, most likely the plants would perish and so would the people and animals who depend on the plants to stay alive. A howling hurricane makes us wonder whether such wild winds are really necessary. They cause disastrous destruc- tion on land and sea and cer- tainly seem to serve no useful purpose. But they do. Winds, including gentle breezes and mighty gales, are needed to keep and breezes. But everythin! that happens to the atmosphere tends to start breezes blowing in one direction or another. As things are, there is no s'o'j the winds from blowing which is very lucky for us and all other living things. There are a few places when no breezes blow for days t> even weeks. The men of ol sailing ships dreaded thes deadly calm regions. Often the starved for food and water, un able to move while tha su blazed down through the sti: ling air. In slimmer, the heat rise from our scorched city street. Imagine what the hot, chokin air would be like if no breeze ever came along to replace i Sometimes desert winds ar wild and cruel. But imagine no cool breezes ever blew ther if no winds brought in fres oxygen from faraway forest Not only are the world wim seas in a healthy condition. The global atmosphere strives to keep its weight, its temperature and its mixture of gases evenly distributed. The only way to do this is by mov- ing assorted masses of air and this moving air is the wind. They also stir up waves on the sea and help to mingle the warm and cool waters between the equator and the poles. Without the winds, life on land and in the sea would soon stifle. Fortunately, things on this planet are arranged to keep the winds in constant motion. They are governed by the nature of gases, by the sun and by our orbiting globe as it rotates around its tilted axis. Like all gaseous substances, the air spreads out to occupy all the space available. When warmed, it expands and becomes light- er. The earth's gravity strives to equalize the global weight of the atmosphere. As a general rule, heavier cooler air flows and blows toward masses of light, warm air. As a rule, the winds blow from high pressure pockets toward low pressure pockets. These basic factors set up six belts of prevailing winds that circle the globe between the poles and the equator. The sun creates warm and cool patches that often disrupt the global wind systems with local storms useful, they are necessary to our survival.

D, How low can blood sugar go? Dear Dr. Lamb The first time I -wrote you I didn't tell you what was really bothering me, but I will this time. I had a blood sugar test in the hos- pital and it went down to 40 so I have low blood sugar and I nearly passed out. How low can it go? My temp- erature is always a point lower than normal, about 97 degrees and I have a headache most of the time. Is this part of low blood sugar? One doctor put me on a sugar free diet and the Surgery not the answer to heart artery disease SASKATOON heart surgeon said surgery is not the' answer to increases in coron- ary artery disease, responsible for almost a third of all deaths among Canadian men, hall of them before the age of 65.

Firor, of the surgery depart- ment at the University of Sas- katchewan Hospital, told del- egates to the Canadian Society of Laboratory Technologists annual meeting. He said that although a syn- thetic valve is far from perfect, it is still better than the dis- eased one.

The protein diel makes my problem worse anc the candy increases my ener- gy and then I get the head aches. I have had this problem for several years. I have thought of suicide when I _ very depressed but luckily someone has always been around me. All I want is some answers and I don't seem to be able to get them. I read all of your columns so I won't miss it- Dear Header I know how distressed you must be. A short time ago I wrote five columns on the problem of low blood sugar which should cover most of the points you have raised. If you have missed them par- haps you can go to your local newspaper office where they have a file of their previous newspapers and look them up. The best approach is not a strict protein diet nor using can- dy. I m not surprised that you have had trouble with both of these approaches. What you need is a good sensible diet. Eliminate concentrated sweets like sugar in coffee, syrup on hot cakes, and try to eat a diet based more on tean meats, lean poultry, and an adequate amount of vegtables and fruit. In brief, avoid the sugars and starches and be sure that you get sufficient protein and vege- tables with roughage. This will go a long way toward helpinj your problem. Avoid sweei liquids. These pass directly through the stomach and are absorbed almost at once into the blood stream. This causes the blood sugar tho go up shar- ply, then rebound to low levels. There- is a wide variation how low the blood sugar can be without causing trouble, but 40 is in the range to cause symp- toms. There are some who normal- ly have a slightly lower tem- perature and I wouldn't worry about it. As a general rule ani- mals with lower temperatures Eve longer than those with high- er temperatures so you may ac- tually live longer because of it. There are some people who have reasons other than their diet for having low blood sug- ar.

People as the Queen's husband explained to a congress of auto engi- neers, would be similar in principle to the cow catch- ers that once adorned rail- way locomotives. The duke said the death rate in accidents between autos and pedestrians would be reduced if the walker could be held by the car instead of being thrown to the road.
